Hillary Clinton, Victim Of Russian-Linked Hack?

- September 30, 2015

Hillary Clinton Says There Is No Evidence That Her Email Account Was Hacked. "Law enforcement officials have said that Mrs. Clinton, who is seeking the 2016 Democratic nomination for president, is not a target of the investigation, and she has said there is no evidence that her account was hacked." (Michael Schmidt and David Sanger, "F.B.I. Tracking Path Of Classified Email From State Dept. To Hillary Clinton, The New York Times, 8/14/15)

TONIGHT, THE AP REPORTS CLINTON'S SERVER WAS TARGETED FIVE TIMES BY HACKERS, ONE OF WHICH WAS RUSSIAN

Clinton Was Sent Multiple Trojan Horse Emails As Part Of A Scam That, If Downloaded, Allowed Hackers To View The Victim's Computer Files

The Associated Press Is Reporting That "Russia-Linked Hackers Tried At Least Five Times To Pry Into Hillary Rodham Clinton's Private Email Account…" "Newly released emails show Russia-linked hackers tried at least five times to pry into Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email account while she was secretary of state. It is unclear if she clicked on any attachment and exposed her account. Clinton received the infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets, over four hours early the morning of Aug. 3, 2011. The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets, which would have allowed hackers to take control of their computers." (Bradley Klapper, Jack Gillum and Stephen Braun, "Emails: Russia-Linked Hackers Tried To Access Clinton Server," The Associated Press , 9/30/15)

  • One Of The Servers Transmitting Malicious Software Was In Russia. "Security researchers who analyzed the malicious software have said that infected computers would transmit information from victims to at least three server computers overseas, including one in Russia. That doesn't necessarily mean Russians were responsible." (Bradley Klapper, Jack Gillum and Stephen Braun, "Emails: Russia-Linked Hackers Tried To Access Clinton Server," The Associated Press , 9/30/15)

In 2011, NBC News Warned That A Fake Email Scam Was Circulating Claiming To Be From New York State About A "Uniform Traffic Ticket" And Told The User To Download An Attached File. "Email con artists are hoping you'll put the brakes on for their latest scam. Researchers at the security firm Sophos came across an email campaign informing recipients that they've incurred a 'Uniform Traffic Ticket' from the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles for speeding on July 5 at 7:25 a.m. But the message appears to come from an @nyc.gov email address, which gives it at least a hint of credibility and could potentially scare victims into following its orders to open and print out the attached .zip file and mail it to 'Town Court, Chatam Hall.'" (Matt Liebowitz, "Motorists: Beware Fake Traffic Ticket Email Scam," NBC News , 8/17/11)

But The Attached File Actually Contained A Trojan Horse That Would Allow The Hackers To Access The Users Computer. "The attachment, like so many other online scams, contains a Trojan horse, identified as 'Troj/Invo-Zip' that could allow attackers access to your Windows system and give them the ability to drop more malicious files on it." (Matt Liebowitz, "Motorists: Beware Fake Traffic Ticket Email Scam," NBC News , 8/17/11)
